The Men of March is a detached building located on a sizeable corner plot close to the centre of March in Cambridgeshire just off the A141 between Peterborough and Kings Lynn. It’s on one of the main roads leading into March and is the only pub in the ‘West End’ area of town and as such is a community hub for locals. March is an attractive Market Town with a population of 22,000 and agriculture as well as food processing are key to the local economy.
The Men of March operates from a main bar with an additional long corner server which allows most of the pub in sight while serving. The pub has two distinct trading areas, to one side you will find a dining area which covers for 24 diners and adjacent to this is a games area housing a pool table and darts board making this the ideal space to host local sports teams. There is a well-equipped trading kitchen just off the bar and the toilets are upstairs with a disabled access toilet downstairs.
To the front and side of the pub there is a parking area and a recently complete external drinking area split into two areas, one having a paved seating area and the other an artificial lawned grass area making this suitable for all year round.
Th Men of March is key to the local community and is well supported through the locals who enjoy the pub for a drink and to take advantage of the sports offer here in way of the pool table, darts board ad televised sports. As advised, sports are key here and there are a number of teams in place. The food offer has increasingly become more important here to support the local community and would be welcomed by a relaunched quality value led menu fulfilling further potential here. Weekends are especially busy, in particular Friday nights and Sunday daytimes, making this a priority to focus on.
To the first floor you will find the private accommodation which is in good order and consists of three bedrooms, bathroom and a kitchen.
